Concert to promote country’s traditional music

A special concert entitled “Vietnam Beauty” honoring the intangible cultural heritage of the country will be held at the Au Co Arts Center in Hanoi on September 10.

The concert will present to audiences various kinds of music and dance from 54 provinces of Vietnam.

UNESCO has so far recognized five heritages of Vietnam as Intangible Heritage of Humanity, including Nha Nhac (Hue royal music), Ca Tru (ceremonial songs), Quan Ho (Love duets) and Hoi Giong (Saint Giong Festival).

The concert aims not only to keep alive the traditions of Vietnamese folk music and foster love for this style amongst people, but also aims to promote Vietnamese culture and traditions to international visitors.

The event was first organized in 2010 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Viet Nam Music and Dance Theatre.
